I made hummus this weekend and it was so good that I wanted to blog the recipe before I forgot how I made it. I don't claim that this recipe is traditional but it was delicious and very inexpensive so that's all that matters to me.
Roasted Garlic Hummus
1 can of garbanzo beans or 1 1/2 cups cooked beans
For each 1 1/2 cups of beans add:
*1/4 cup olive oil (or whatever oil you like)
*3/4 tsp. salt
*a few cloves of roasted garlic** (the whole head of garlic was enough for a quadruple batch of hummus)
*enough water (~1/4 cup) to blend smoothly
**directions on how to roast garlic here
Add everything to a blender or food processor and blend until very smooth. Serve or refrigerate until later.
My pound of dry garbanzo beans yielded 6 cups of cooked beans so I made a quadruple batch of hummus and froze some for later.
The best part is that the rest of my family doesn't like hummus so I get to eat all of this wonderful stuff all by myself!
